The person who appears in the video is Heiji Zengata.
He is an unofficial collaborator who was responsible for the end of the police function in the Edo period.
He was not a regular member of the magistrate's office and had no salary or appointment, but he received pocket money from an official.
Meals and snacks for Okabiki are always prepared in the official mansion, and it seems that they could eat there at any time.
Since the punishment in the Edo period was based on expulsion from the community, a community of criminals who were exiled from the community was formed outside the official community such as towns and villages, and those who were familiar with the internal society.

What was for it is now a police notebook.
